As per data released by the National Limb Loss Information Center, nearly 1.7 million individuals are living with limb loss in the US alone. Also it is estimated that one of out of 200 people in the US is an amputee. While vascular complications make a common reason, cases of limb loss due to cancer and trauma were reported as well. This has led to the risen demand for artificial limbs. Furthermore, advent of novel technologies and materials have bode well for the market, making artificial limbs more adaptable. For instance, the soft and plaint features of advanced prosthetics have made expansion and contraction of sockets during the swing phase easier, holding it securely to the residual limb. Alongside these technological advancements, several innovations are on card, which promise the global artificial limbs market a promising future.

On account of the rising demand for artificial limbs, private and public companies, alike, are impelled to invest increasingly on research and development. Consequently, remarkable advancements have come to foray in prosthetic and orthotic technologies. Similar efforts have led to the innovation of next generation prosthetics. These artificial limbs have come with or more than 25 joints helping mimic natural limbs movement. In addition, these advancements have enabled amputees to control movements of their artificial limb functions using mind. According to the report, the artificial limbs market is likely to witness increasing demand for customized prosthetics, especially among people involved in leisure activities and sports. Such trends will prove favorable for the artificial limbs market.

Regionally, North America is likely to offer lucrative prospects as the region is an early adopter of advanced technologies. Also the high disposable income of consumers and the presence of a sophisticated healthcare infrastructure will support the market’s trajectory in North America.
